  1. In all the years I worked as a social worker, whenever I'd get an abusive mom or dad, I couldn't help but want to slap them. A child is such a gift. I have never taken for granted the role of "mom". It broke my heart to talk to an adoption specialist from our child welfare department. They had volumes ...huge books filled with pictures and profiles of kids who were in need of homes. But they weren't babies. And everyone wants the babies.
    How can these parents not appreciate such treasures? I will never understand it.

  2. I love this, Sooze! (✿◠‿◠)

  3. Cheesecake made from nuts? I'm intrigued!

    An Unordinary Hello

  4. Elizabeth... I so understand what you mean. Its heartbreaking, especially for someone like me that just hasn't been able to produce any of my own.

    Thanks T.R, I love that spelling of Sooze :)!!

    Christen... here's the recipe: (its really yummy!!)

  5. I love this! What fun. I might have to do this in an upcoming post- what a great idea.

  6. Don't tell anyone but I was doing the same thing when I was 'playing' the recorder! I played the complete wrong song once and no one even noticed, so I figured that it didn't really matter! :)

    High five for Pirates of the Carribean quotes! [Johnny Depp swoon!]

  7. Rebecca, be sure to send me the link when you've done it!!

    Alex, you really made me giggle about the recorder! I'm so glad it wasn't just me :D


  8. I love rooibos
    I totally forgot about ironing - hate that too ;)
    You´re moving to England? How exciting!!

    Great to get to know you better!

    xo Martie

  9. Hey Martie! Most people I speak to don't what Rooibos is, so it's nice to find a like-minded individual!!
    Thanks for popping by :D xx
